2022 release. Blacklist is an atmospheric modern rock band whose music has been described as "anthemic" (The Guardian), "darkly erotic, strangely sensual" (The Village Voice) and "a much-needed anomaly in NYC's music scene" (Other Music NYC). Starting out as the flagship band of artist Pieter Schoolwerth's Wierd Records imprint, their trademark sound is dense and dark, incorporating elements of shoegaze and heavy metal with coldwave. Blacklist's debut LP, Midnight of the Century - produced by Ed Buller (Suede, Pulp) - was released in 2009. After a long hiatus, the band returned in summer of 2020 with the "Disorder" single, inspired by the racial justice protests in the United States. Their new album Afterworld explores the possible meanings of love in a time of political and environmental collapse.
